It's a confusing subject. From what you describe I don't think you need releases. You need a release when the building is the subject of the photograph and even then I don't think it is clear cut.

Robert,

When you think of releases, you think of models(or at least I do):-)

As long as an object is easily viewable from a public area, then I would think it was fair game. Years back, some photographers, using long lenses, took pictures of jackie Onassis running around nude, and published them! They were on public land. Another case involved someone taking pictures of a naked couple in their house. Because they had left their window open, and the photographer was on "public property" when he shot the pics, there was no foul done. Laws are pretty wacky, and may vary from one state to the next. Like Nagasaki said, it's a confusing subject

Robert
